if it's not working change it, change your approach quote

If what you’re doing isn’t working quote, change your approach:

“If What You’re Doing is Not Working, Change It!”
– Tony Robbins

There’s many variations of this quote, here’s a few others:

“Don’t get stuck in a repetitious pattern. If things aren’t working, change your approach – your perception, actions, responsibility frame, etc.” – Tony Robbins

“If somethings not working change your approach” – Tony Robbins

“insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results” – Albert Einstein (Rita Mae Brown)


Meaning of this quote:

One of the teachings of Jim Rohn is that you’re not a tree.

As silly or stupid as it sounds, it’s true and drives home the point.

Sometimes we just need to be grabbed and shaken and realize how irrational we can be.

If you keep doing the same things day in and day out, how could you expect any other result then the one you currently have.

Jim asks the question, if you want to know what the next 5 years looks like just look at the past five. That is, unless, if you *magical word* CHANGE. Or don’t change, it’s a free world and the choice is yours. But in five years time you will surely will arrive. The big question is whether it be at a well designed destination or not? That’s up to you to decide.

Good stuff, right?

Here’s a few other principles I’ve learned from him on the topic of making change:

“don’t wish for a better wind, the key is to wish for the wisdom to set a better sail” and he also says, “don’t wish things were easier, wish you were better” and “don’t wish for less challenges, wish for more skills.”
